Carolus have given us a hoppy beast here. However, it's not too bitter and goes down well

There are a great number of American IPAs in the Belgian style. This is like Belgian with a lot of hops. Winner!

Pours a hazy amber with full head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, almost perfumey, with fruity esters leaning towards dried stoned fruit, bananas and oranges. Flavors of same, very much a Belgian Golden with a bit of hops bittering on the finish. Well made.

Pungent (and delicious) yeast character comes through immediately, but a metallic finish. Perhaps cap contaminated?
